What one person finds sexy is anther person's ick factor.

It's an eternal debate.

The mind, the heart, pheromones... it's a messy combo.

To each their own.


Redditor PetrichorPrints wanted to hear about what makes many of you tingle in ways the rest of us don't get.

They asked:

"What’s something other people find sexy that you just can’t understand?"

I'm not telling you my secrets. But I'll listen to yours.

"People doing fillers to make their cheek bones look more 'refined.' it just looks like you got stung by a bee."

'right there.

"There was a dude years ago that I was seeing, we're on a webcam and he said he liked my crease. Had no idea what he was talking about and he kept saying 'right there.' Turns out he likes armpit creases."

TinkleTwinkleToes

"That is oddly specific. Congrats, you taught me that literally anything can be a turn-on for the right people."

Speak Up

"That voice some women put on to seem cutesy/sexy, I can only describe it as 'baby voice', but it just annoys me. Talk like an adult."

HuskyLuke

"That's the voice I use to talk to my cat. She doesn't care if I talk in my normal voice, but slap the baby tone on it and she's all ears."

HuskyLuke

"My wife had a friend who did that baby voice. Not all the time, just when she thought she was being cute. It used to drive me crazy, especially in the car. One day when I was driving them back from a crafting event we had agreed to drop her off at her place. As we got closer, she baby talked , You don’t have to stop. Just slow down and I will jump out. Hehehehe.”

"After we dropped her off, I mimicked her 'I’ll just jump out. Hehe.'"

"My wife said, 'I felt like shoving her out the door and shouting, Tuck and roll, *itch!'"

Awaken

"Interrupting while I'm asleep."

Dea7777

"Yes! I always wondered if I was in some very tiny minority because it seems to be labeled as a 'hot' thing to do. Waking me up in the middle of the night, you’re going to get someone angry, disheveled, and confused. I’m surely not going to be rearing to go. I don’t even like being touched in my sleep. We have the whole waking day to bang."

nononanana

"Omg this is a double edged sword for me, because I love the fantasy of my husband taking me when he wants but the actual execution of this? Nope nope nope! Let me sleep!"

Serious

"The serious/intense 'model' face (ie. Blue Steel). Completely unsexy."

DiscreetJourneyman

"I’m assuming you mean faces 'like' Blue Steel but not actually Blue Steel itself which is incredible."

Werk. Stand. Give. Face.

Too Big

"I don't understand the big breast implants some women get. Breast implants are fine but the huge a** ones are just a massive turn off."

6969sinep

"Totally get this. I've always felt the same way. Until I met my wife. The first time I saw her breasts I was flabbergasted! 'Cos they're not over the top while she's dressed. But once they're free and breezy I immediately questioned their authenticity! She never hid the fact they aren't real, but my word they've changed my mind on augmentation! Teardrop implants can be (trust me) magnificent!"

Attitudes

"Being mean to someone. I understand it's 'I'm so sexy I can treat you like crap' attitude, but what about 'I'm so confident, I don't have to put people down' confidence?"

kai1415926535

"If you mean someone getting turned on by another person being mean to them then it's almost always a domination thing."

JohanGrimm

"I question more the people who are with these a**holes. I don't get how someone likes that at all unless they're masochistic. And even if they are, I would imagine they would want someone who's only that way in the bedroom and not all the time."

NSFW Details About Historical Figures Left Out Of History Books

It's very popular to create rumors about certain historical figures to which there is no concrete evidence.

Such as the sexual orientation of Abraham Lincoln or the alleged illicit behavior of Lewis Carroll and Hans Christian Andersen.

Understandably, these mostly baseless, though not necessarily false, theories are left out of history books.

However, there are facts about legends of history which have, indeed, been proven true, but are also left out of history books.

Namely, because it's not the sort of information many would consider in polite conversation, let alone be talked about in schools.

Even if it is no less fascinating than anything else we might learn.

Conspiracy Theories People Absolutely Believe Are True

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

But like anyone spinning a rumor, people tend to latch on to spurious information that cannot be verified by science or fact because it's just easy to go along with it without taking the time for research.

But there are some conspiracy theories that do make us wonder if there is something to them.

You don't have to be acquainted with someone to know enough about the kind of person they are.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.

Affairs and infidelity are sadly a more common part of life than we care to admit.

People cheat. it seems to be part of the human condition.

Are we meant to be monogamous?

That's a story for a different article.

I say though, if you're going to cheat... have some basic human decency.

Don't cheat with people you all know.

And how are BFFs not automatically off limits?
